Tokyo joe by Bryan Ferry
My girl Friday she no square
She like lotus blossom in her hair
Be-bop records and something new
Sometimes borrowed but sheÂ´s never blue
Oh no........not Tokyo Joe
Way past midnight - she not home
She cut the ice down the Danger Zone
Water-tight dresses - she donÂ´t care
A trifle risquÃƒ©, a tart, no sir........
Oh no........sounds like Tokyo Joe
Geisha girl show you she adore you
Two oriental eyes implore you
Femme fatale or ingenue?
She very cunning, fiendish clever
Geisha girl suffer many times a fool
When all the worldÂ´s a stage, oh where are you?
Tokyo Rose on the radio
Or Diz Â´n Bird puttinÂ´ on the moan
TappinÂ´ out telexes to Tupelo
Dear John, doh ray me fah so?
LetÂ´s go........call for Tokyo Joe
WalkinÂ´ tall down the Danger Zone
She hokey-cokey till the cows come home
Big shot - from the hip - neon cool
Say, when youÂ´ve been around, whatÂ´s left to do?
DonÂ´t know? Ask Tokyo Joe
So inscrutable her reply
"Ask no question and tell me no lie"
GI boys howlinÂ´ out for more
VIPÂ´S purrinÂ´ "je tÂ´adore"........
Ah so........thatÂ´s Tokyo Joe
